Track Name: Simple Things
I want a swing, I want blue skies,
I want the laundry in the yard
Simple things, they never last,
I wonder where do they go?

I never wondered far enough,
Enough to make this my own world,
Enough to see is a simple world
It’s a simple world indeed

I want to skip in the rain,
I want to dance like in 7th grade
simple things, they never last
I wonder where do they go?

I never wondered far enough,
Enough to make this my own world,
Enough to see is a simple world
It’s a simple world indeed
Track Name: Days Like These
Call your parents, tell them your leaving, your leaving now, with me.
Bring a journal, and grab your passport,
you won't forget this, anyhow

cause its 1,2,3 and it starts off slowly learning all the names and faces of this lonely planet, that we call earth, and its 4,5,6 you want to go to heaven as your dying trying to find fun
It's days like these, that make you feel alive!

Hurry up, their aint that much time left, for this adventure will change your life, I call the captain, embark tonight, don't want to miss you, anyhow

from the top of a rooftop, 3,200 miles away, we set of to discover, what the world is.
Track Name: Anywhere is fine
Father told me to stay away, couldn’t resist,
I couldn’t wait, So I took the long drive here Thinking how to disappear

It be by boat, to take a train,To fly somewhere, pretend we're rich, Let’s take a cab, get lost outside, Doesn’t matter where, anywhere is fine

I Drove all night to you, you were still there
The boat had left that night, you were still there, The stars were out that night, we were still there, Doesn’t matter where, anywhere is fine
We can dance in the middle of the kitchen
Or in the middle of Hong Kong
We can drink at the bar down the corner
Or at the top of Paris
Doesn’t matter where, anywhere is fine
Track Name: Alaska
Oh Alaska, you seem so far away,
from this fishing boat, that is cruising along to a place, left yet unknown
new faces, and places, to listen and the smell in the air of the salt,
i can hear her calling my name
i got to go, but I'll leave you with this...


And the Prince William Sound,
well he doesn't sing much,
he just gives us a show,
hoping for us to come back

we'll we're not coming back,
we'll we're not coming back,
we'll we're not coming, not coming ,
not coming, not coming back
Track Name: Russian Rockn Roll Band
On the road with a Russian rock'n roll band
Living it up, never felt this bad, Half drunk, or half asleep, It doesn’t matter if you’re playing a gig, When you’re on the road, with a Russian rock'n roll band, Vlad shots a porno,
and Anton gets high, It’s not so bad I guess, that’s the life, On the road, with a Russian rock'n roll band

Hey now, hey now, hey now, Won’t you come and party with us all night long

Cold feet, colder hands, Cold steel, smell of sweat from this old van, When you’re on the road, with a Russian rock'n roll band
Cheap beer, plenty of vodka, Son…..
They don’t do this for money, Playing loud, partying plenty, When you’re on the road, with a Russian rock'n roll band
Track Name: Drunk with Milan
I don’t know how we got here,
The man, upstairs is scream your ears
His been drinking, and we been sinking,
In this stiken hotel, with too many beers

I don’t know, i don't know, i don’t know
What we’re doing here,
but i’ll do the best with you here

Milan is on, Milan is Off, Milan is on

Let get out and see this town,
The lights are on, this night is ours
We were warned, but we never listen,
They’ll never know what their missing

I’ll keep time, and you’ll keep showing
You’ll keep track of where we’re going
Track Name: Dear Sister
Got your letter dear sister, glad to hear you are doing well, Seeing faces, and new places, Australia sounds like fun, Don’t get bitten by a shark, hahahaha

Got some news for you, and I don’t know how to tell you, and I don't know, how to tell you, Or maybe I should just wait, For another day

Keep sending pictures and seeing the world, Our little Michael misses you and wants you home, Could you believe his almost 8?
But we know theirs nothing in the Midwest for you
Track Name: Walls of Caro
Shhh, shhh, shhh we need to jump now

Walls of Cairo coming down,
down down down, blood on ground
The uprising is here,
in the name of freedom

Their arming, people starving,
just Pay the man, and then we go

Shhh, shhh, shhh we need to run now

After all is said and done
Walls of cairo they come, come undone
Let your freedom, be heard

Their arming, people starving,
just Pay the man, and then we go
Shhh, shhh, shhh we need to go now
Track Name: Ferris Wheel Dreams
Can’t believe I fell asleep, Could have been what you did
Could have been that pretty smile, That made me want to Dream

I can’t believe what you say, Was it really all pretend?
From up here I can see my house,Well I don’t want to just
Dream

Shut your lips, go back to sleep, On this ferries wheel, where we met, I thought I heard you call my name, It rang it rang as loud as this. I took my journal to make sure. Took pictures, writings on the wall. Met people I never knew, They we’re all strange and beautiful. I took one step away, I saw the world with you, After all is early evening in the west, am not sure if want to go home.
